If you’re a man looking for a drug and alcohol treatment center, a male-only facility is one option to consider. Many men find that being with other men, makes it easier to connect and open up in front of their peers. Sometimes there is hesitation and discomfort when sharing intimate details in a group setting with women present. This can be avoided by choosing a gender specific facility. By choosing a men-only facility, with an environment of acceptance, you’ll be increasing your comfort level significantly. Connecting with other men in the same position as them can go a long way when it comes to opening up in treatment. Being able to be yourself without fear of judgement is pivotal to a successful stay in treatment.
Addiction doesn’t discriminate by gender, but men in particular become more dependent on substances than women. They are also much less likely to seek out help for their addiction because of the stigma attached. Some men look at asking for help as weak or a sign of failure, when in actuality that couldn’t be further than the truth. Seeking treatment is an incredibly brave thing to do, and one of the best decisions you can make for yourself, and your family. Meeting other men who have broken free from the cycle of addiction, without distraction from the opposite sex, can be a great source of motivation.
A men’s drug rehab should follow the same practices as any other quality rehabilitation program. It should focus on evidence-based therapy and encompass different variations throughout its programming. Some programs will work with its guests to design custom treatment plans, designed to address specific needs. Facilities sometimes use medication assisted treatment to stabilize a client during their stay. It’s possible that a patient responds so well to a medication, that they remain on it even after leaving the program.
Men face a unique set of issues when dealing with a substance use disorder. As fathers, husbands, or caregivers, men often feel a sense of responsibility to their duties. What they often fail to realize is that without first getting well, everything else will suffer. Addressing their addiction is a must for a successful, happy life. Effective men’s drug rehab will understand these issues, and offer male-specific therapies and strategies.
There are many options available for men’s drug rehab including:
- Inpatient men’s drug rehab
- Outpatient men’s drug rehab
- Intensive Outpatient men’s drug rehab
- Holistic men’s drug rehab
- Faith-based men’s drug rehab
- 12-Step based men’s drug rehab
- Private men’s drug rehab
- Medication-assisted treatment men’s drug rehab
When choosing which is right for you, look into each program carefully and decide if they meet your needs. Not every program is created equal. In fact, there are large differences between most facilities. Asking for professional help to decide which facility matches you best, is always recommended.
